DISTRICT 5750 NEWS

After visiting nearly 2/3 of our Rotary clubs in our district, I am in awe at the amazing service you give to your communities.  I knew each club had its unique projects and fundraisers, but when you think about the impact of 37 Rotary clubs, it’s unbelievable.  From displaying American flags on patriotic holidays to supporting your local schools to bringing meals to the elderly, you are making a big difference!  When you combine your service along with our Rotary Foundation, we are unstoppable in changing the world!

Soon after, service found a place in Rotary, and as our organization expanded, so did its influence. In time, Rotary’s service, supported by our Rotary Foundation, would change the lives of families and communities across the world. We formed partnerships and focused our service to increase our impact. We launched the world’s largest public-private health initiative, partnering with...
